Visited Newcastle for the first time this week at the tender age of 43 and I was mightily impressed by the place. Beautiful city and I good pubs too. The Crown Posada pub was a particular highlight with a lovely wee snug area where I supped a pint of Grafitti IPA. Headed over the road to Brewdog and was well impressed by the beer and friendly staff. I think I'll be back in the Toon very soon.
